The goal of this project is to provide a hand-picked collection of Android libraries, tools, open-source projects, books, blogs, tutorials - you name it.
This project will try to showcase only the best, most popular and well-tested resources that you will actually need and find useful rather than overwhelming you with a plethora of low-quality ones.
Happy learning. 👍
This project is open to all kinds of contribution in all of its categories. Together, we can make it the ultimate Android reference available for free, for everyone, forever.
For resource contribution, just follow the following format:
[reference-name](link) - Description, and raise a Pull Request. If you want to contribute multiple resources, raise separate PRs for each of them. Please consider adding resources maintaining the default sorting order of the category, like alphabetical sorting.
If you have any suggestion for including more categories, feel free to open a Github issue for us to have more discussion on it. Please DO NOT contribute low-quality, spammy or self-promotional stuff. Let's keep this project clean and useful.
If you feel that a particular resource(s) listed here is not a good fit for this project and should be removed, feel free to let me know by opening an issue.
These are some of the best and the most popular libraries and utilities to boost up your Android development. This list is divided into several essential categories and only includes resources which have been battle-tested by a variety of developers over a long time.
There are lots of open-source apps available in the Android community for developers to learn from, but it becomes very difficult to find the ones which are actually worth your time and can help you learn a lot of things. This list (loosely categorized on the basis of your Android skills) can help you find the resource you always wanted.
"A craftsman is only as good as his tools" - to level up your Android development workflow you need to have the right tools always ready in your toolbox. This list is here to provide you with hand-picked tools to significantly improve your Android development life.
Kotlin, the new statically-typed programming language from JetBrains aims to make Android app development fun and enjoyable once again. It's like Java on steroids. Here is a list of some cool Kotlin resources for you to get started.
IDE shortcuts can really make your development workflow fast and smooth and Android Studio shines perfectly in this aspect. Ideally, you should make it a habit to not pick up the mouse to perform most of your actions and slowly migrate towards a mouseless-workflow. Here are some of the most useful shortcuts for you to get started.
(Currently, only Mac shortcuts are available. Windows and Linux shortcuts coming soon.)
Never-ever-ever forget these shortcuts.
|Find everything (like files, classes, symbols, etc.)||Shift + Shift|
|Show a list of automatic fixes and IDE suggestions at the cursor||Option + Enter|
|Rename all copies of the variable/method/class at the cursor||Shift + F6|
|List all usages of the variable/method/class at the cursor||Command + Option + F7|
|Generate code (like getters, setters, constructors, method overrides)||Command + N|
|Search for any action in Android Studio||Command + Shift + A|
|Find text occurencesin the current file (Enter = cycle through results, Esc. = cancel)||Command + F|
|Show the list of recently used files in the IDE||Command + E|
|Run the app or test||Control + R|
You will surely need these quite often.
|Search for and open any file by name||Command + Shift + O|

These can help you level up your development workflow.
